Robinson Cano’s rarely one to say much. Yesterday he quickly shot down questions about Biogenesis and his upcoming free agency, but he did say a little bit about some of the topics you’d expect him to address. Here are a few words from the Yankees best player while we wait for him to bat second in tonight’s All-Star Game.

And don’t forget, we’re going to try a chat tonight.

Robinson CanoOn the state of the Yankees…
“We’ve just got to get the rest of the guys back. We’re still playing pretty good baseball now. We’re not in first place, but I would say that with the guys that we have, we’ve been doing a pretty good job. Now hopefully we get the rest of the guys and we make a run.”

On the injuries…
“I know what I had to face at the beginning of the season, but I just told myself, just go there and don’t try to do too much. Just be the same guy. I’ve been playing my game and that’s what I’m going to do this year, just play my game.”

On his first half…
“I would say it’s a good half. Maybe not like the ones that I had before, but I would say it’s good. When you have to go by yourself with all this kind of stuff, you have to prepare. You don’t have the teammates that you’re used to having in the past, but at the same time you have to appreciate what the guys have done so far.”

On Mariano Rivera…
“I would say he’s one of the greatest in the game. He’s a guy that I always want in the game, never had any problems. The way I look at Mariano, I would say he’s the perfect player. … That’s what you want in your life. You want to be successful, you want to be given respect by everyone in the game and outside the game, and always be humble.”

On being an All-Star again…
“It’s really special. The fans, to name me as a starter in the All Star game, it’s really special. And it’s at home — even if it’s in Gueens, it’s still in New York — so we just want to get it going and put on a good show.”
